Right off the bat, I can see her arms are waaay too long. Focus on her right forearm.

that's weird, I did do that, but when I checked the post, it was blank  :'(

Anyway, now that it's there (thanks Facet), I hope I can get critique

np

er yeah, looks pretty off-balance is the first thing I'd change, a lot of people including me skew unconsciously so flipping the image to get a fresh reference point is a good idea, Mathias mentioned arm length.

On creating line art I'm not sure what you're having issue with; is this intended as a guide for a fully rendered image or a polished standalone thing?

I think I am like 90% done with the line art.  I'm curious, I'm having trouble with adjusting the forearm to make it shorter Mathias.  How would you go about shortening it without having to erase everything around it?
Here's the updated line art

 
Facet, is the angle fixed?  I just rotated it a few degrees and cleaned up everything

Just a quick paintover and edit. Mine isn't exactly perfect but you get the idea :D It's purely an anatomical and balance edit so the pose suffers quite a bit, just a matter of rejiggering until you get both right.



The outfit is quite nice but it's draped over bad structure, always make sure what is under the clothes is solid otherwise your picture will never look quite right. As far as shortening the arm, there isn't really a way to do it without erasing everything around it. Never be afraid of doing so though, big changes like that are going to have more impact to the final image than spending an extra hour getting the AA right or something.

EDIT: Maybe it just clicked for me what pose you were trying to achieve, another very quick drawing to illustrate a point.



Basically if you're trying to achieve a sense of movement and balance you need pay very close attention to the line of action in the pose, make sure everything kind of follows a single path. To keep the pose nice on this I've lifted her left foot off the ground so rather than trying to balance on it awkwardly she's using it to assist her (try leaning your upper body to the side and see what your legs do), then it's just a matter of trying to balance the amount of mass on one side with the other. Because she's assumed to be in movement there is some leeway as her momentum to her right will counteract the extra mass.
